Sevilla Parte Dos

The second day in Sevilla we visited the 3rd largest cathedral in the world. The Cathedral of Sevilla was built after the reconquista and sits on the site of the city's former mosque. You can climb the steps of the Giralda (tower) that was once the minaret that the Muslims used for the call to prayer, and get some incredible views of the city.

We also visited Plaza Espana, a plaza that was built in 1929 for a Spanish-American Exhibition. Later in the evening Chris and I took a wander through El Barrio de Santa Cruz - a neighborhood with cramped streets, hidden patios, and lots of Sevillians out eating tapas and drinking sangria.
